General Information[edit | edit source]
The RDG-2 (Ручная Дымовая Граната - Smoke hand grenade) is a cheap, simple, Soviet-era smoke grenade found in many Eastern European countries. Purchasable off the internet, the RDG-2 is popular for many paramilitary organisations and civilian applications. The casing is made from cylindrical cardboard with two coloured caps on the end where the smoke is deployed from. The RDG-2 is used as a ground to ground or ground to air signaling or a screening device for unit maneuvering. Weighing five hundred grams, the average male soldier can throw it approximately twenty-five metres.
In-Game[edit | edit source]
It takes four seconds for the RDG-2 to become ready for deployment as both ends of the tube need to be pulled. The RDG-2 can be thrown thirty-five metres. Once the grenade is thrown, it takes eight seconds for the smoke to be deployed. From the deployment of smoke, the grenade will be most effective after twelve seconds. The RDG-2 will remain in its most effective state for twenty-five seconds before the amount of smoke is reduced, after this point it takes one minute before it becomes inert. The grenade will become completely inert after one minute and forty-five seconds.
It is available in blue, red, orange, yellow, black, green, purple and white.
